Btated, who, by the way, is a very Prince

"A special to the News from Fort Worth
says : .. A startling, rumor spread through
this city yesterday to the effect that the
late. John Nichols, Vice-Tresident of the
City "National Band, whose sudden death
occurred last Monday at the Bank, was a
defaulter to a large sum. Immediately
after hi demise, the officers of that bank
called a meeting of all the other bankers
of the city to investigate the. affairs of
the bank., .The committee report that
they find Nichols to have been defaulter
to ; about $30,000,: but ' tho comnaktee
consider the bank solvent and sound. -
Theajikasapaid np- capital of
$150,000, with a surplus of $C0,DDO. Mrr
A. M. Britton. the president of the bank.
says that they are well . prepared for a
run. and that the bank is perfectly
solvent and will recover its losses out of
the 'estate of Nichols. It is now generally
believed that Nichols' death was snicidaj,
He is believed to have left an estate of
the amount ol $10,000. arid that his life
was insured for $24,000. Although
Nichols was the President of the bank
and held $50,000 worth of its stock, he
officiated as teller and thus had opportu
ties . for ' ' abstracting' ' . monnv unrlinnt
the knowledge or assistance of any other
employee. Nichols was also city Treas
urer; .but thus far no irregularities in his
accounts as Treasurer, has been discovs
ered. So far as is known, the outside in
debtedness of Nichols in individual
notes, amounts to but $20,000, although
rumors are current that his private in
debtedness is much larger. Nichols was
a men ef frugal habits, and did not'drink
or gamble. His funeral yesterday, was
the largest ever witnessed in the city
The discovery ef the defalcation created
a profound sensation, as Nichols stood
very high, and. was one of the most
prominent citizens of this place. He
leaves two daughters, both of whom are
married. . '

The Democratic State Convention was
late in coming to order this morning
owing to the difficulty of getting the seats
of the delegates and visitors. The sub
committee on resolutions appointed last
evening remained in session . until 5 o'
clock this morning; then,, being unable
to agree, they turned the matter to the
full committee, and that committee will
probably not be able to report to the
